op and at a rally, with condoleezza rice. you know, there are a lot of former george w. bush administration officials advising the romney campaign. but even they, you would think, would be sort of cognizant of how people view that administration, right? you think they would recognize that there is a little political peril in trying to underscore to a country that is really paying attention right now that everybody should expect a lot of continuity between the george w. bush years and a romney presidency. if you like the george w. bush years and you miss all those folks, like condoleezza rice, don't worry, if you elect romney, you'll see more of them again. this came up last night in what i thought was a brilliant question from one of the audience members at that debate at hofstra, and it got right at the central problem that the republicans have been dealing, since the support for romney creatored during the george w. bush second term. the greatest show on earth has been the republican party figuring out who it is after bush and cheney. the republican party figuring out if th
own time. >> my running mate, dick cheney. >> before bush made this announcement, rove wanted to mislead the media. >> we had a a guy on the campaign who was leaker. he said what is going on? i said look, big secret, don't tell anybody but burn has decided to go with jack of missouri. >> john: media ran with the false story. >> i was the guy that was going to go leak. >> john: lying to the guy? >> yes. >> what it does it helps tell a story, you want it told by an evening anchor or a candidate that expresses why he made this choice. >> john: four years later the "new york post" says john kerry had picked richard gephardt to to be his running mate but, of course, he picked out edwards. edwards turned out to be another mistake, but the media reported even fooled the campaign manager. >> i called up dick gephardt, i know you can't talk about this. he said i never happened. he said, steve, it didn't happen. wouldn't y wouldn't you believe so emphatically? >> you absolutely must keep all of this conversation going on with the nominee. >> john: so lying is okay in politics? >> runnin
to tie romney's economic plans to what bush did, and, you know, bush came in. bush said i'm going to cut taxes and decrease regulations and the economy is going to take off, and he did that and the economy went like that. i think obama needs to say why should we go back to the thing that created the crisis. i think he needs to talk specifically to the women. that's a very frightening thing for obama. he needs to talk specifically to women. he needs to try to reintroduce the plutocrat theme. just last month, romney was a bumbling pluto crat. and he need an agenda. >> jennifer: okay. do you think hitting him for example on bain, is that going to be effective in turning romney back into the guy who fired american workers and outsourced american jobs. is that sort of the thrust of where the president should go? >> it all depends on how he says it, and the circumstances that it comes up under, but, yes, i think it has a lot of possible. romney has been talking about china on the stump, and i think that opening up the option for obama to talk about china. and then there is th
you want to have your own narrative at your own time. >> my running mate, dick cheney. >> before bush made this announcement, rove wanted to mislead the media. >> we had a guy on the campaign who was a leaker. >> how do you know he was a leaker? >> well, because he was a leaker. -- said, what's going on with the vice presidency? i said, look, big secret, don't tell anybody, but bush has decided to go with jack danforth of missouri. >> the media ran with the false story. >> felt sort of bad, but i wasn't lying to the media, i was just giving misdirection to the guy who leaked. >> lying to the guy? >> well, yeah. it helps tell a story. when you want to have the story told by an evening anchor or the story told by the candidate who expresses in front of the cameras with as few filters as possible why he made this choice. >> four years later the "new york post" said john kerry had picked richard gephardt to be his running mate. this was of course a mistake. kerry had picked john edwards. john edwards turned out to be another kind of mistake, but that's another story. what the media report
. >> so when we see president obama were president bush standing a lot of time in florida and in ohio, that right there is the key? >> right. what sparked the idea for this book is president bush's first term, president george w. bush, the time he spent in ohio, florida, pennsylvania, and you can certainly find examples of presidents attending to the electoral concerns, but i said what we see if we look at it systematically, if we looked at it over decades, with the presidents do, what patterns would play out and is there a disproportionate focus on the electoral matters to the estimates and what did you fight? >> the short answer is that we have seen a substantial increase in the time that presidents devote to electoral concerns. and the clear indicator is fund-raising. if a president goes to ohio to years before the election is either because it is one of the largest states because he cares about the good people of ohio or because it is likely to edge in the presidential election? that is a bit harder to say, but what is unambiguously electoral is the presidential fund-raising. and
george w. bush and his attendant countries involvement with the superpac, and american crossroads. [applause] be mac thank you. there's a little less than two months before the election and in many ways this is the time the book was designed for because this are into these last two months, this is the election really get going. and to me, one of the great untold stories is not just obama versus romney. it is obama versus karl rove and he's in behind the scenes the whole time and he has put together over $1 billion that will be spent in these last two months. read new york here are not going to see much spent in the battleground states. and he's become king of the sub two. he has cover when you put this together money with money romney has raised the republican national committee is a total of about $1.8 billion. to put that in this, in no way, mccain had 375 million to spend, so this is a fact or a five. you'll start seeing it come out now. the other thing i want to discuss about him, is susie really? what does he do? is a political operative. how does he operate? what does he do?
they deal. >> host: when we see president obama or president bush spending a lot of time in florida and ohio, that right there is the key? >> guest: exactly. what sparked the idea was president bush's first term when there was a lot of focus on the time he spent in ohio, florida, pennsylvania. and you can certainly find examples of presidents, but i said but would receive for systematically, over decades, everything presidents do? what patterns to play out and is there a disproportionate focus on a lecture on matters? >> host: what did you find? >> guest: we've seen a substantial increase in the time presidents to vote to electoral concern. the clear indicators that the president goes to ohio two years before the election, is either because it's one of the largest states or because he cares about the people of ohio or the presidential election. that's a bit harder to say. but what is unambiguously electoral is presidential fundraising and that is seen as kuwait over the past three and a half decades. we've also seen a rise in strategic travel and disproportionate focus on battleground states
hurricane katrina under george w. bush, it was an absolute disaster because the guys don't believe in government. so when you put them in charge of government, they do a horrible job. that shouldn't be surprising. now, romney and ryan say oh, no, it's okay. even if we're going to cut it by 40%, a romney-ryan administration will always ensure that disaster funding is there for those in need. period. now, isn't that great? that's just basically the same old romney-ryan lie. i'm going to cut it by 40% but it will be exactly the same. no it won't! you'll cut it by 40%. it will be a disaster, literally! and then we turn to noaa's analysis in 2011 of what the cuts would do. they say without data from the satellite closest to the end of its shelf life, the accuracy of its forecasts for major storms like blizzards and hurricanes would be decreased by approximately 50%. and that's not just hey i can't tell what the weather's going to be like or i can't exactly tell where the storm's going to hit. it has ramifications.
biassed. and in favor the president, romney asked what differentiates himself between the evil george bush, i thought how stupid could that be. neil: they gathered 82 people in the room. we're told, there are so many undecided voters right now, they took 82 of them. put them in a studio in hempstead, i did not buy that. >> the questions about equality in the work place, i think romney got the hard stuff behind him now. neil: i understand that 11 questions got in, they were going for 13, if that 12th question got in, it would have been for the president, bow, how do you do it? i look at this, i say, who delivered the goods? and i thought they both delivered thered their argument. after the ffrst half hour, the president more aggressively than first half. but you have to pay a fair set of rules. >> when one guy does it the other guy does it, if you violate the rules, i'm violating the rules, what bothers me most, i don't think that romney took advantage of some of the shots he could have. for example, when they talk about him being rich, he could have said, wait, there was a democrat his nam
, problems with w., a question about former president george w. bush throughs romney for a loop. we will ponder his head scratching answer involving venezuelans next on "now." ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans? [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain tend to weigh less than those who don't. multigrain cheerios >>> perhaps most notorious and least discussed republican of the 2012 election is former president george w. bush. someone mitt romney would prefer to keep in the recesses of the american imagination, unsurprisingly when asked about the elephant in the room last night, and how his policies differ from w.'s, romney was less than forthcoming. >> thank you. i appreciate that question. i just want to make sure that i think i was supposed to get that last answer but i want to point out that i don't believe -- >> i don't think so, candy. i want to make sure our time keepers are working here. >> after a brief detour romney finally answered the question by focusing on venezuela. >> president bush and i are dif

of a negotiation was started in the bush administration. what he did was hold up free trade agreements for three years while american manufacturers were locked out of those markets. that is not a trade policy that engages in the global trading system and takes our seat at the table with an effort to design the rules in ways that not only serve our interest you incapable of saying i want good in those markets. we go to break down barriers. but just as important, adopting the system we have in the united states is the most powerful thing we can do for economic development. so the idea but my state capitalism to run rampant and are not willing to engage in negotiations shaping the growth, do we define our future to make it greater globally. >> i respond to that? >> i very much like rants previous answer, by the way. look, first there were two big disagreements we have. first of all, the president takes credit for the three south korea panels. let me tell you something. signing a trade agreement and getting a trade agreement over the kind of pump that we did is far, far more difficult. penalty was t
are agreeing. obama hasn't got the middle class out of the hole that happened under george bush's watch and policies of george bush. but look at the review. broadly obama has sought policies to decrease taxes on the middle class. 16 taxings decreased for maul business and 3600 for the class that are done underneath this president. >> it sounds smart because of the accent. wayne, two examples. taxes that are in place and taxes that are coming in the end of the year and alling the class and behaabout the issue regulation. is that the issue that is burying the middle class. >> regulation is more of the issue. we get the bush tax cut in effect. and the idea that the last four years you have had massive taxings. no they are yet to come. man date for noncompliance in 2014 and cadillac tax in 2018 and special kids in 2013. they were not taxes of the last four years they are taxes of the future. you have had massive regulation in the last four years and executive orders coming out of the federal government and viserating the congressional man date and letting the bureaucracy run the country and

. after the prediction the economy got worse under bush and the beginning of the obama term. so obama didn't say it. and it was actually much worse because of the republicans. nonetheless he did made an effective case for people who don't know all the facts. you want to keep going governor romney. >> obama: please proceed governor. >> cenk: all right let's proceed to the worse moment for romney. are you different than george w. bush. look at this terrible answer. >> romney: president bush and i are different people and these are different times. we can now by virtue of new technology get all the energy we need in north america without having to go to the arabs or venezuelans, that wasn't true in his time. number two trade, i would expand trade in latin america. i'll present a balanced budget. president bush didn't. president obama is right. it was outrageous to have deficits of. >> cenk: that's the best you got? we don't need the arabs any more and i'm going to kick some chinese ass? that was horrible. do you know why he doesn't have a good answer? because he does have the same plan as geo

about this in your book "drift," under reagan, we saw it under george w. bush. government grew as a share of gdp, security spending, even things like medicare part d. the question is, who will government benefit? that is question at issue in the campaign. do not let yourself -- the reason that hypocrisy is so important, do not let yourself get suckered into the belief this is a battle over how big government is going to be. i don't think that's actually what's on the table. what's on the table is are the poor going to see their medicaid cut and the pentagon get $2 trillion or is the balance in the other direction? that is what is on the table. >> it's not just a false debate about the size of government. it's a false debate about whether or not government works. the thing that i thought was important last night about biden and the reason that we cut that sound bite as long as we did there, so you can hear what biden says, is that he doesn't just say, ah, you're a hypocrite, you wanted this money. he say, you wanted this money because as you argued to me, this spending works. it
tenant. the order of questioning was determined by a -- she elected to speak last. vice president bush will get the first question. the debate will be built upon a series of questions from the four reporters on the panel. a reporter will ask a candid it a question, a follow up question, and the same to the other candidate. the debate will be divided into two parts. the first one on domestic affairs, the second on foreign affairs. the manner of address was decided by the candidates. it will be vice president bush, congresswoman ferarro. >> john adams, the first president once said "today i am nothing, tomorrow i may be everything." with that in mind, i would like to ask the following question. four years ago you ran against mr. reagan for the nomination. you disagree with them on issues like the equal rights amendment, abortion, and you labeled his policies as voodoo. now you apparently agree with them on every issue. if he should be called upon to assume the presidency, would you follow mr. reagan's policies down the line or would you go back to some of your own ideas? >> i do nothing
bush, last year you paid less than 13% of your income in taxes. according to the i.r.s. someone in your bracket normally pays 23%. is there something wrong with our tax laws that requires such large deductions of taxes for wealthy people? >> they reported federal taxes, state and local taxes. it gives people a fairer picture. that year i happened to pay a lot of state and local taxes, which, as you know, are deducted from the other. i looked it up the other day, and we paid, i think it's 342% of our gross income in taxes. s >> we did a little looking around to see about his. we can't find his 1981 tax return. it may have been released. maybe my bonet knows whether he released it. we did find his income is $1.4 million, and i think he paid the same as i did in taxes. he also made a reference that troubled me very much. he started talking about my chauffeur. you know, i'm driven to work by the secret service. so is mrs. ferraro, so is mr. mondale's. they saved the life of the president of the united states. i thought that was a cheap shot telling the american people to try to divide class
will get to rebut the other. the order will be vice president bush, congresswoman ferraro >> vice president bush, four years ago, you ran against mr. reagan for the republican nomination. you disagreed with him on such issues as the equal rights amendment, abortion, and you labeled his economic policies as voo-doo. now you apparently agree with him on every issue. would you follow mr. reagan's policies down the line, or would you revert to some of your own ideas? >> i don't think there is a great difference between my ideas and president reagan's. one of the reasons i think we are an effective team is i believe firmly in his leadership. he has really turned this country around. we agree on the economic programs. when we come into office, inflation was 21%. interest rates were wiping out americans. 21.5%, if you can believe it. productivity was down. savings was down. there was despair. the leadership of the country told the people there was a malaise out there. this president turned it oorned, and i have been with him every step of the way. of course i would continue those programs, because
is underscored by two fax. both george bush and michael bad -- michael dukakis said their running mates would reveal a lot about themselves. based on the history, there is almost a 50-50 chance that one of the men here tonight will become president of the united states. the candidates are senator dan quayle and lloyd bentsen, the democratic nominee. [applause] for the next 90 minutes, we will be questioning the candidates following a format designed and agreed to by representatives of the two campaigns. however, there are america rigid restrictions on the questions my colleagues and i may ask. the first question goes to senator quayle. you have to the minister responded. you have been criticized for your decision to stay out of the vietnam war, for your poor economic -- academic record. more troubling by some of the comments to have made in your own party. a separate -- secretary of the state said your peck was the dumbest mistake george bush could have made it. your leader added to the senate said a better qualified person could have been chosen. other republicans have been more critical in
prescott bush, said, and i quote, "if his father were alive today, i'm sure his father would see it as a shocking transformation." is senator hatfield right? >> what was he referring to? >> he was referring to your performance in the campaign. >> i think my dad would be pretty proud of me, because i think we've come a long, long way and i think, you know three months ago, i remember some of the great publications in this country had written me off. and what i've had to do is define, not just my position, but to define his and i hope i've done it fairly. and the reason i've had to do that is that he ran on the left in the democratic primary, ran firmly and ran with conviction and ran on his record. and then at that democratic convention, they made a determination and they said there, ideology doesn't matter, just competence. and in the process the negatives began. it wasn't me that was there at that convention. thank god i was with jimmy baker camping out and i didn't have to hear all the personal attacks on me out of that democratic convention. and i'm not the one that compared t

locked in, the spending on that will increase. he's got the tax cuts, the rates from the bush years. >> rates are going rise. >> they're expiring. they're going to go up automatically. all of this is baked in. he just needs to basically preside over it and he gets a huge part of his agenda continuing. >> well, we'll see. i mean, he ran on -- in 2008 with a message of hope, and hope would really be the theme of a second term, hope that the world's investors will continue to lend us money, even as he continues to run massive deficits. we've been lucky with rates so low. we're paying $200 billion a year, the government, just in interest. normalize $600 billion a year. that's basically medicare just in interest on the debt every year. so i think hope that the world's markets will continue to fund his spending would be a key issue. >> fingers crossed. >> yeah. >> kim, what about the prospects of a budget deal , and republicans hold the house, are we going to get a big debt bargain? >> this is going to be ugly. one of the problems, i don't think republicans have necessarily thought entire
